As we're now in 2018 I'm hoping to get an exact date for the switch over to the next edition of the CISSP book and exam.
I understand it may be April, is there now an exact date on that?
The Detailed Content Outline has been updated and will go live in April.
There are some slight changes but the most important is the balance of weights.
For a CISSP candidate working towards the exam the current materials are still valid.
The official (ISC)2 Detailed Content Outline are available her:
The updates to the CISSP exam will happen April 1. We'll have a new course then, and aiming for a new CBK book in the Summer.
We'll share details as we have them! In the meantime, we have both versions of the exam outline (prior to April 1, and after) available for download on our website.
I noticed new contents have few new topics in some domains. It means do I need to wait for the new book to take new CISSP exam in April or I can pass the exam with current content?
I don't believe that the changes will have a big impact on the exam. If you feel a good level of preparedness you can sit for the exam.
I am liking many of the changes in order to keep up with the technology. Excited to see how the new topics are being covered and what is being emphasized. As an assessor, I am still using the CISSP book to ensure my assessments cover the best practices and to come up with additional questions included in the assessment.
I'm working on a Last minute guide to CISSP and the changes have no real impact on my book. Of course I updated the few changes in the DCO!
